Bug#281394: env2debconf doesn't work on s390

Please let them know that I've found that this is not a kernel bug at
all. If I boot the installer with init=/bin/sh, the environment variales
are there. It seems something in the boot sequence, specific to s390,
loses the variales before env2deconf can get to them.

The other problem is that none of the s390 images have network-preseed
on them, although that is easily fixed.
